Abstract: Project management is a kind of innovative practice that aims at achieving specified objectives through efficient use of resources. Considering the alarming number of failed construction projects around the world, the purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of project management practice on performance of public housing projects in Rwanda. The Government institution named Rwanda Housing Authority (RHA) has been mandated to manage all public housing projects, thus this study focuses on projects under this organization’s management. This study used both a descriptive cross-sectional survey research design and the correlational research design, with a target population of fifty-seven (57) employees of RHA who are directly deployed under the department in charge of construction project management with further reference made to their job profiles. Data were collected using questionnaires upon questionnaire filtering approach, and the data analysis was done using Microsoft Excel and is presented using tables, and regression equations. This study findings revealed that respondents have knowledge on project management practice and its paramount importance on projects performance.
